was not going to step down from the presidential podium into that courtroom and become a prosecutor. mitt romney was happy to take on the role of the smiling prosecutor, which i think we can all agree was exactly what he should have done. tactically what we saw mitt romney do makes sense from where we're sitting certainly, and when you are sitting where we're sitting, watching what the president was doing in the debate, being careful, protecting his lead, you might say, you can look at that and say that's not going to work in the next two debates. and i think team obama is probably looking at that right now and saying okay, we have to step into this debate. we can't stand back and i would differ with you, rachel about the moderator point in this debate. i actually like this kind of debate because the moderator is not a factor. he leaves it up to the debaters to make it a debate. mitt romney's team knew that and mitt romney came into this debate determined to make it a debate. no one brought up green jobs. the moderator didn't bring up green jobs. mitt romney did to use it as a tool against the p
liberal in this country knows that mitt romney wants to privatize social security down the road. and to do a deal with the devil on that would be the wrong thing to do. i think the president created a big problem for himself. i don't think he explained himself very well on the economy. i thought he was off his game. i was stunned tonight. rash elyou just mentioned about time, the president needs to get in and fight for that time. there's people that expect him to fight for that time. >> i thought the one thing that mitt romney did tonight that he has not done for the duration of the campaign and was very effective was just lop off the right wing of his party. he didn't care about them tonight. if something was popular, more money for community schools, he was for that. it didn't matter if it would make the right wing, how. whenever the president named a popular policy, more spendingn education, more money on medicare, he was for it and he would attack the president for things that were unpopular. so the question becomes can you effectively tie mitt romney to the republican party and its co
or the other. that's something to keep your eye on. romney's favorability is moving up, obama's are moving down. mitt romney's winning independents. >> it is just amazing how quickly narratives change in this election. last week, it was, you know, doomsday for romney, then the debate happened. who knows what it's going to be next week. is it still wide open? >> i think it's moved from a race that was heavily tilted toward obama, the president was just beating romney as a campaigner, and the debate has now made it much more of a horse race, and we're likely to see fluidity right to the end and the win may go because we see these numbers move three, four points on a debate, it may be a couple points on the unemployment numbers. the win may go to the guy who has the last big play. who has the last big favorable play. i don't think these debates are fool's gold. i know cornell wouldn' have said that if obama had won. i think they were really important turning point but it's turned it into a much, much closer race. >> cornell, ari, david, thank you. fascinating stuff. >> thank you. >>> let us know w
upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're feeding off of it, but they don't exactly agree with that assessment. brooke, we're all sort of looking to tomorrow night to be this big moment that is going to change everything and be a make or break moment. it may not turn out that way. it may be a draw. the candidates move on to the next debate and candy crowley gets her shot. >> i look forward to seeing candy crowley. to quote her, she said chris christie did not get the memo when it comes to downplaying expectations. we shall see, jim acosta. we shall see. quick reminder for all of us, tomorrow night, the big night, the president versus his challenger face to face, special coverage here on cnn 7:00 p.m. eastern. so watch on tv, hop online, go to cnn.com
what? those same weapons systems could shoot down israeli airliners. it is interesting romney says no daylight between him and the israelis but i bet there is on this issue. >> respond, ambassador williamson. >> well, the type of passive and lead from the behind approach is not only resulted in 30,000 dead in syria, and over 100,000 refugees in our nato allied turkey, destabilization in the region and now missile or arms being fired between syria and turkey, our nato ally for whom we have obligations but the same approach resulted in iran getting much, much closer to nuclear breakout, resulted in the 20 embassies that had demonstrations. >> but what about the specific -- the specific -- >> american flag burned and the black flag of al qaeda raised and american ambassador killed. >> the specific point that collin just made if you give shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles to some guys they could shoot down israeli aircraft? how do you prevent that? >> well, how you prevent it is not waiting until it's out of hand. you get involved earlier. you anticipate the problem. you lead. that
from not only the wall street poll but swing states poll. you mentioned that mitt romney's closed the deficit among likely voters for obama from five points to three points. and in florida, he's closed from five down to one which is tied given the margin of error in our poll. in virginia, he has closed the gap from five to two. if you look at the state of ohio, a must-win state for mitt romney, mathematically possible for him to get to it without it but his strategists think he needs it. he needs to make progress there. but the fact that some of the national polls are coming back a little bit, some of the swing state polls are tightening, is a bit of an earn couragement for romney that he still has an opportunity for deficit with three or four points to change the dynamic in some way. he's got to hope that obama is not on his best game. you could have a scenario that like what happened in 2000 where george w. bush moved significantly without gore and ultimately became president. >> it's interesting that the poll also shows, as you mention, this 12% of swingable votes in the middle
romney opens his mouth, obama's taking notes and he just talked and looked down and looked down and looked down. he's never making contact. >> i'm sorry. if you're planning on waxing big bird off of pbs, i don't think that there's americans down for that. >> so, that is from you. thank you for your cnn ireports. now, to twitter. how about some tweets? some downright priceless. first, from dennis miller, obama better hope a kicked rear end is covered under obamacare. next om indecision. the october surprise in this election is that mitt romney is actually good at something. ouch. jim sterling tweets, obama is winning the "looking amazingly condescending when the other guy talks" race. finally this one for you from doug benson. just 14 minutes until we can all go back to preferring the kand date we liked when the debate started. all from twitter. we have a lot more. you know, as far as what happened last night and i promise to hear from the president and it sounds as though he is still debating today. he spoke just a couple hours ago in denver. here he is, president barack obama.
down if you make a bad bet. in the meantime by the way, we also made sure that all the help that we provided those banks was paid back every single dime with interest. now, governor romney has said he wants to repeal dodd-frank. and i appreciate and it appears we've got some agreement that a marketplace to work has to have some regulation. but in the past governor romney has said he just wants to repeal dodd-frank. roll it back. so the question is, does anybody out there think that the big problem we had is that there was too much oversight and regulation of wall street? because if you do, then governor romney is your candidate. but that's not what i believe. >> sorry, jim, but that's just not the facts. look, we have to have regulation on wall street. that's why i'd have regulation. but i wouldn't designate five banks as too big to fail and give them a blank check. that's one of the unintended consequences of dodd-frank. we need to get rid of that provision because it's killing regional and small banks. they're getting hurt. let me mention other regulation in dodd-frank. you're say
to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christie? for god sakes, if romney fails, he's going to lose the general election creating chaos in the republican party and that's going to leave open 2016 -- oh. the jersey is strong in this one. >> welcome to "morning joe," it's top of the hour and howard dean's already inciting problems here. it's tuesday, october 2nd. with us onset we have msnbc mike barnicle. howard dean, and former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner, stranger. >> long time, no see. >> you're always here. >> you're never here. >> we're globe trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fasci
turned upside down come thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christie? for god's sakes, if romney fails to meet those expectations, he's going to lose the general election and that's going to leave open -- oh. the jersey is strong in this one. >> okay. it's time now to talk about what we learned today. willie geist? >> i learned last night's senate debate aim going to refer to mike barnicle as professor. >> okay. rattner? >> i was reminded of how tough the situation in afghanistan is and how we have no good way out. >> absolutely. >> quiet but only when not given a microphone. >> i learned that i want to be the
tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high, so i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%. i also wants to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. on energy, governor romney and i both agree we need to boost american energy production. and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years. but i also believe that we have to look at the energy sources of the future, like wind, solar and biofuels. and to make those investments so all this is possible -- now, in order for to us do it, we have to close our deficit, and one of the things we've been discussing tonight, how do we deal with our tax code and make sure we are reducing spending in a responsible way and how do we have enough revenue in those investments? this is a difference, because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax
recommend stocks. it is going to send sprint further down. jim, are you abandoning sprint? because t mobil is not going to buy them. i'm jcram jim kramer and i will you tomorrow. larry, what are you looking at tonight? >> mitt romney floats and idea to cap keyductions across the board. we set up our own debate. those are the topics we are going to tackle. and this evening. listen to vice president joe biden on the trail. it is the gift that keeps on giving. >> how they can justify. raising taxes in the middle class. it has been buried in the last four years. how in the lord's name. >> that is nodt a froidian slip. plus three stories that happen to break before the election. a leftist new york attorneyy general looking to bash banks and that is as phony as a $3 bill. also a judge strikes down pennsylvania's voter id law and the obama administration is telling companies it is okay to disregard the law when it comes to handing out pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he
-- >> home field advantage, baby. >> like you're two touch donees down in the late four quart in the election. you're dreaming just as much about that. >> let's talk about the election actually. we were talking before the break, so we have the colorado poll saying romney will win. ras mmussen up two for romney. >> do not bring up rasmussen. >> and chuck todd yesterday on meet the press talking about the enthusiasm gap. >> reuters has obama up. >> so how do you read it this morning? >> romney has some momentum from the debate. i think the debate is a more powerful political force in the race than the unemployment numbers that came out. we were all talking about those on friday. but you had more than north of 60 million people watching these two guys on wednesday night and you see some momentum, democrats say the gap has narrowed in some states where obama had a lead. he's getting closer in most of the swing states. up two in rasmussen, down three in gallup. and the question is does this week continue that momentum. the vice president debate in the past has been critical for either accelerating
't have to look it, is he it. he is it. mitt romney is a good debater, the president is a good debater. there will be no knockout punch but they'll have to be solid in order to move the ball down the field. >> we saw a clip in the previous segment from fox over the weekend with ryan and the big issue was the details on the tax plan. how much more in terms of details do you expect we'll learn from romney and by the way, are we going to learn any more details in terms of what president obama's planning to do? i'll go to you, morris, with that first in. >> we don't have any details on what the challenger is going to do. governor romney said he'll create 12 million jobs and the president has laid out a vision, put a marker in the ground and does have a track record to run on if you look at what he's been able to do in four years in moving us from the worst economy, almost a depression to where we are now in a recovery moving in the right direction. the devil will be in the details and the governor just can't sit there and say i'll create 12 million new jobs, trust me. >> terry, do you come
